Lil D lost a tooth yesterday.
“Mamma, what is the spelling for lakh?”, she called out from her room. I told her, wondering what she was upto. I found out soon enough. She was requesting the tooth fairy for a handsome sum of Rs. One Lakh for a measly tooth!!
This morning, Lil D found a ten rupee note under her pillow, with an I.O.U. for Rs. 99,990/-. She was pretty excited about getting ten rupees “on Ugadi”.
Meanwhile, I’m wondering how and when the poor tooth fairy will cough up the remaining amount! 😀
